Related to recent ECA messages regarding COVID-19, the ECA is now part of a newly formed task force of construction associations throughout the state that is focused on safety, policy, advocacy and communication to the highest degree possible. Never has a unified message and focus been more critical to the construction industry than it is now during this crisis. Along with many of our association partners, the ECA is asking that all of our contractor members participate in the following:
CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY COVID-19 SAFETY STAND-DOWN
Wednesday, April 1, 10:00 AM (30 Minutes)
Safety on the job site has been and will remain the absolute highest priority of our contractor members. Participating in this statewide Safety Stand-Down allows the industry to unite together in support of our top priority—the safety and health of our workers.
Below are two links. The first is Toolbox Meeting talking points, and the other is a template that you can modify/use to inform your jobsite leadership regarding the purpose of these Stand-Down meetings and basic guidance on how to conduct the meeting(s). We know that many of you have already been proactive in messaging and meeting with your workforce regarding COVID-19, however participating actively in this Stand-Down will reinforce the need for diligence regarding the new rules we are working under.
If you have any questions, please call the ECA office number or my mobile phone: 657-281-9720
